Why is US Prestige Declining?

August 1954
New Republic;8/23/54, Vol. 131 Issue 8, p8
This article explores causes for the wave of anti Americanism in Great Britain. First, U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower's Administration's enchantment with the, ability of business men to put all things right is highly suspect in democratic quarters abroad. Many of the world's social, political and economic problems are not susceptible to solution by administrators trained to produce a profit. Another reason is the prolonged boycott of China at the American insistence. The Time-Life, assumption of the U.S. moral superiority in the world is unwarranted and galling.
